How Do You Calm A Future Geek?

How do you calm a crying baby and ensure he or she will be a future geek?

Two word: John Williams.

As the YouTube video below shows,  a crying infant (and we imagine future) geek goes from crying to calm when he hears the opening theme from Star Wars.

Here’s what the proud parents have to say about their video.

We discovered by accident that the Star Wars Theme Song has magical abilities to calm the baby down. He was screaming and crying in the car one day, and the MP3 player started playing this song and he just stopped. Then, every time after that when he’d be crying for no reason (we knew his diaper was clean, tummy was full, etc.) and we’d play this song, he’d perk right up.
He is 4 months old in this video.

    My son, when he was much younger, would stop crying when I played a techo-version of “Take on Me”. It was amusing to watch him completely stop crying and listen…at least until the some was over.
